Frin holds an EPSRC Post-Doctoral Fellowship, with joint appointment across the faculties of Engineering (Energy Research Institute) and Environment (Sustainability Research Institute). She is a member of the Centre for Integrated Energy Research.
Previously, Frin was a research fellow on the City Energy Futures project, an interdisciplinary project bringing together mathematicians, computer simulation scientists, engineers and social scientists to investigate the use of complexity modelling in city-level energy decision-making.
Before joining the University of Leeds in 2010, Frin worked in the public sector, developing strategic programmes to support the energy and environmental sectors.
Her degree and PhD are in the physical sciences.
